Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Connective tissue in meat does not include

    • A.

      Fat

    • B.

      Elastin

    • C.

      Collagen

    • D.

      Silverskin

    • E.

      Blood

    Correct Answer
    A. Fat
    Explanation
    Connective tissue in meat refers to the structural components that hold the muscle fibers together. It includes elastin, collagen, and silverskin, which are responsible for providing strength and support to the meat. However, fat is not considered connective tissue. It is a separate component found in meat that contributes to its flavor, juiciness, and tenderness. Therefore, fat is not included in the connective tissue of meat.

    The greatest water-holding capacity (WHC) is found in

    • A.

      Beef

    • B.

      Pork

    • C.

      Veal

    • D.

      Lamb

    • E.

      Poultry

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Beef
    E. Poultry
    Explanation
    Beef and poultry have the greatest water-holding capacity (WHC) compared to pork, veal, and lamb. This means that beef and poultry have the ability to retain more moisture during cooking, resulting in juicier and more tender meat. The higher WHC in beef and poultry is attributed to their higher collagen content, which helps to retain water. Pork, veal, and lamb have lower collagen content, leading to lower WHC and potentially drier meat when cooked.

    The highest concentration of myoglobin in muscle is found in

    • A.

      Beef

    • B.

      Pork

    • C.

      Veal

    • D.

      Lamb

    • E.

      Poultry

    Correct Answer
    A. Beef
    Explanation
    Beef has the highest concentration of myoglobin in muscle compared to pork, veal, lamb, and poultry. Myoglobin is a protein found in muscle tissues that is responsible for storing and transporting oxygen. It gives meat its red color and is particularly abundant in muscles that are used for sustained activity, such as those in beef. This high concentration of myoglobin in beef makes it a popular choice for individuals looking for a rich source of iron and a flavorful meat option.

    A connective tissue in protein that can be softened by cooking

    • A.

      Collagen

    • B.

      Meat

    • C.

      Elastin

    • D.

      Fat

    • E.

      Blood

    Correct Answer
    A. Collagen
    Explanation
    Collagen is a connective tissue in protein that can be softened by cooking. When collagen is heated, it undergoes a process called denaturation, which causes it to break down and become tender. This is why meats that are high in collagen, such as tough cuts of beef or pork, become more tender and juicy when cooked slowly at low temperatures for a long period of time. Therefore, collagen is the correct answer in this case.

    A mixture of ground meat and fat is

    • A.

      Forcemeat

    • B.

      Offal meat

    • C.

      Primal cuts

    • D.

      Round part

    • E.

      Scapular part

    Correct Answer
    A. Forcemeat
    Explanation
    Forcemeat refers to a mixture of ground meat and fat, often combined with other ingredients such as herbs, spices, and breadcrumbs. It is commonly used as a filling in various dishes like sausages, pâtés, and meatballs.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Muscle tissue is made up of

    • A.

      75% water, 20% protein, and 5% fat

    • B.

      60% water, 20% protein, and 20% fat

    • C.

      65% water, 20% protein, and 15% fat

    • D.

      80% water, 17% protein, and 3% fat

    • E.

      50% water, 25% protein, and 25% fat

    Correct Answer
    A. 75% water, 20% protein, and 5% fat
    Explanation
    Muscle tissue is primarily composed of water, protein, and fat. Water makes up the largest proportion at 75%, providing hydration and maintaining the structure of the tissue. Protein accounts for 20% and is essential for muscle growth, repair, and function. Fat makes up the smallest percentage at 5%, serving as a source of energy and insulation for the muscle tissue. This composition allows muscles to perform their functions effectively, including movement, stability, and heat production.

  • 7. 

    Kind of meat is not allowed to be used for products of higher grades.

    • A.

      Meat is frozen twice

    • B.

      Fresh meat

    • C.

      Chilled meat

    • D.

      Offal

    • E.

      Recently defrosted

    Correct Answer
    A. Meat is frozen twice
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "meat is frozen twice." This is because when meat is frozen twice, it can potentially lead to a decrease in quality and safety. The process of freezing and thawing meat multiple times can cause the meat to become mushy, lose moisture, and develop off-flavors. Therefore, it is not allowed to be used for products of higher grades to maintain the desired quality standards.

  • 8. 

    Acceptable content of flesh tissue on bones after boning ...

    • A.

      Up to 10 %

    • B.

      15%

    • C.

      5%

    • D.

      20%

    • E.

      Up to 8 %

    Correct Answer
    A. Up to 10 %
    Explanation
    The acceptable content of flesh tissue on bones after boning is up to 10%. This means that it is considered acceptable for there to be up to 10% of flesh tissue remaining on the bones after the boning process. Any amount above 10% would be considered excessive and not within the acceptable range.

  • 9. 

    Boning of the cuts

    • A.

      The process of separating flesh (muscle, fat, and connective tissue) from bones with a knife or other cutting tools

    • B.

      For separation from offal

    • C.

      Isolation of coarse connective tissue (tendons, ligaments) and adipose tissue, small bones, cartilage, and large blood vessels from meat

    • D.

      Isolation of small bones, cartilage, and large blood vessels from meat

    • E.

      The dismemberment of half carcasses into separate cuts to facilitate subsequent deboning operations

    Correct Answer
    A. The process of separating flesh (muscle, fat, and connective tissue) from bones with a knife or other cutting tools
    Explanation
    Boning of the cuts refers to the process of removing the flesh (muscle, fat, and connective tissue) from bones using a knife or other cutting tools. This is done to separate the meat from offal, isolate coarse connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, adipose tissue, small bones, cartilage, and large blood vessels from the meat. It can also involve the dismemberment of half carcasses into separate cuts to make it easier to remove the bones later on.

    Correct Answer
    A. 24-30 hours and depends on the weight of the half carcasses
    Explanation
    The duration of defrosting beef half carcasses is typically between 24-30 hours, but this time can vary depending on the weight of the half carcasses.
